stubborn as it is, you think that we are prospering as a nation economically? >> we are not as well off as we have been even as recently as six, ten years ago, but we are still the wealthiest nation in the world. >> all right. we may be the wealthiest nation in the world, but it's not because of income redistribution. now, lesley, when bill clinton was president, we had a very good economy, as everybody remembers. at that point, there were 17 million americans, lesley, on food stamps. in the clinton administration. all right? today there are 47 million. let me repeat that. 17 million on food stamps in clinton, good economy. 47 million under president obama. that stat alone, that's income redistribution. that's basically giving people money to buy food, here, free money. take it. all right? that can't be a healthy situation, lesley. can it? >> it's not because of people everyone wanting a handout.
